, but happy saturday. are we closer to fixing this economy before it is too late? some recent signs of recovery say yes. unemployment down the 7.8%, and that the lowest rate since president obama took office. claims for first time unemployment benefits fell to levels not seen since 2008, and some technical details going on there, but the trend is clear. and real estate collapse got us into the mess, but now the housing prices are timely starting to rise. i will say it again, housing prices are starting to rise and foreclosures fell to five-year lows last month. so how do we make sure that the economy really heals? two different philosophies and one being very big election coming up to fix it. president obama says thathe businesses need the tax incentives to create more jobs, and he says that the government needs to step in and the government needs toinvest in programs now that can pay off later. manufacturing, green energy, instra trui inf infrastructure and aid for state and local governments. mitt romney says to get the government out of the way. and former new york times columnis
and governor romney promised better days ahead, but when will this economy finally start working again for the middle class? the middle class is stuck in the middle. ♪ here i am stuck in the middle with you ♪ >> the classic song was from 1973, but today's middle class is stuck as two political parties run away from the center. what the middle class needs is a deal. >> let's make a deal! >> to grow jobs and to fix the fiscal cliff. senators are talking about starting to talk. how close are they? those of you in the middle are stuck between a near-term fiscal cliff calamity and a long-term debt disaster. one means a recession and lost jobs. ignoring the other means slower growth and lost jobs. it will take real statesmanship, washington, to tackle both at the same time. meantime, it's the jobs right in the middle that disappear, and majority of jobs created make just 13 bucks an hour or less. you're stuck in the middle of closing arguments of an election year, but the two words that matter most to the middle class, you're hired. and in a moment we will look at whether enough jobs are
, applications today are refinance applications and a lot of that money is coming back into the economy and will help during the fourth quarter. that's the good news. bad news is all the job losses on the good producing side of the sector. manufacturing job loss two months in a row. that's global demand and the global weakness. you see the unevenness of the recovery persist. >> that's the stuff that presidential candidates or presidents can have difficulty moving the needle on. you did talk about housing which i've been calling the golden lining around the cloud. i want to bring in don peebles. he owns a real estate firm. he's a democrat. don most of your work is in sort of bigger stuff. you're not buying individual homes. but there's definitely stuff going on in the construction sect jobs in home building, in home buying as diane said in refinancing. these low rates as expensive as they've been to keep in place seem to be combining with low home price, low property price and causing some activity. >> the housing market has picked up especially in more of our global cities. if you look
to understanding the problems of our economy, presenting a plan for the american people, so i think that paul is going to do -- going to do a great job, but i also think it's very important for people to understand, and i think people realize that joe biden is a gifted or ator. he is very good at rhetoric, and i think is he very relatable so i think it's two different people, and i think it's going to be a great night. >> have you talked to ryan at all about his debate performance, what he needs to do, that whole thing? >> sure. paul is one of my very good friends. i talk to paul all the time about a lot of different things, but i think he is taking it very seriously. sure. i think both parties should be nervous. i mean, it's a big night. it's a big -- it's always going to be a big night. >> do you think it makes a difference? there are a lot of people who say, look, the debates are a side show. it's all about -- do you think that ryan has to keep the momentum going from what was widely seen as a mitt romney win in denver? >> we had a good week last week. there's no doubt about it. we have to
of legislation, sitting in congress. and it is much ado about nothing, this election is about the economy, the president has not performed. he is chasing every rabbit down the trail to make this thing about his own record, and the miserable condition of the economy. and that is what we'll talk about. >> but isn't the problem? it comes down to trust, and therefore, we have to trust him, generally. and even his position on abortion in the last 12 months has flip-flopped on abortion. >> it has not, piers. >> it has. >> it has not, piers -- >> let me put the allegations to you, and you can respond. the allegation is that he was saying before i want to repeal roe versus wade, and i want to power to go to the state. and he says now he has no plans regarding abortion. so which is it? >> listen, he is referring to whether or not there is some piles of legislation in congress that he is pursuing in his presidency. he is committed to, and has said it still yet today the fact that we will not be funding abortion with taxpayer's money, whether it be in his own budget or whether it be in foreign aid.
in the united states. the economy. the obama campaign flatly says you're lying. lying about the cost of your tax plan, you're proposed tax reforms. so far you haven't released a lot of specifics about eliminating various loopholes or you've said your tax cuts would be revenue neutral you wouldn't add to the deficit. let's go through how you would do that. specifically home mortgage deductions, charitable mortgage contributions. are you ready to remove those? what's going on? >> well, i've made pretty clear that my prirnls are number one simplify the code. number two, create incentives for small and large businesses to grow. number three, don't reduce the burden on high income taxpayers. and number four, remove the burden somewhat for middle income people. i don't want to raise taxes on any group of americans. those are the principles. at the same time how we carry them out would be lowering the tax rate across the board and making up for that, both with additional growth and with putting a limit on deductions and exemptions, particularly for people at the high end. those are principles which for
of the council of economic advisors said the report provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to heal from the wounds inflicted by the worst do downturn since the great depression. but the former ceo of general electric jack welch tweeted this. "unbelievable job numbers. these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate, so change numbers." the partisan pushing continues this morning. >> on friday we learned that the unemployment rate is now at a its lowest level since i took office. >> friday's jobs report shows that america still desperately needs jobs. yet the president's central and so sole proposal means fewer jobs. >> finally start doing something to acatually help the middle class get ahead. >> we can't afford four more years like the last four. falling incomes, rising prices, 23 million americans struggling for work. >> congress needs to step up and pass my plan to create a veterans job corps to help our returning heroes find work as firefighters, cops. a few weeks ago republicans in the senate voted that plan down. ask them why someone who fights for this country abro
's the world economy and the u.s. economy. the imf cited two reasons things could get worse, first if european lead s fail to support their ailing economies and second if leaders here in the united states let us plunge over the fiscal cliff. the imf sister organization, the world bank citing the same two factors, cut its growth forecast for asia this week as well. now, that's for the next couple of years. where are we going to be in 2016, four years from now, when we're discussing the next u.s. election? that depends on which of these two roads america takes on election day. i'll take you down both paths on this show starting with what 2016 will look like under a president mitt romney. start with jobs. he says 12 million jobs will be created in the next four years. as i keep telling you, that claim it ridiculous, considering the sluggish growth we're seeing right now and the new downward revision. but for the purposes of this exercise, i'll take him at his word and presume an historic surge in jobs lies ahead. let's talk about taxes next. i'm going to let governor romney explain this for himse
zakaria. welcome from all over. i'm fareed zakaria. the state economy. i was the topic of this week's presidential debate and be d deciding week of the election. we're often told we need to get businesses to start investsing and hiring. well, we have three powerhouse ceos on the show. lloyd blankfein, and john of cisco systems. next, 11 years after 9/11, do we have to worry about al qaeda again? i'll talk to the former cia chief michael hayden about the aftermath of the benghazi attack. >>> and on his decade in hiding after a threat was placed on his life. >>> also, if china's growth slows, should the rest of us cheer? no. >>> first, here's my take. the pundit dees claired mitt romney the winner. he was. obama seemed passive, detached, and glum. but what's more significant than how romney said things is what he said. romney repeatedly insisted he was not advocating a big tax kuchlt in fact, he declared unequivocally that he would not cut taxes at all if they added to the deficit at all. now, as "the washington post" reporter checks out, for two years rom hi has been campaigning on a
white house saying about all of this? >> they're effectively saying that the economy, while it's still weak, is showing signs that the president's policies are working, that his agenda is finally getting traction in the economy. here's what the president had to say. >> there are too many middle class families that are still struggling to pay the bills. they were struggling long before the crisis hit. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try and talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> that was friday right after the jobs numbers came out. i'll point out two meaningful things about those jobs numbers. one, you recall when his stimulus plan cameut somebody in his administration said with the stimulus plan. it was never a promise, a projection. symbolically it's meaningful this is now below 8%. also now it's fallen for the first time not because fewer people are looking for jobs. actually, the number of people looking for jobs rose slightly. so it's two pieces of good news for the obama campaig
is coming back into the economy and will help in the fourth quarter. all the job losses on the manufacturing side two months in a row in the heavy manufacturing sector, that's global demand, so you really see the unevenness of the recovery persist, and that's not enough. >> and the presidential candidates can have difficulty moving the needle on that, but you did talk about housing which i call the golden lining around the cloud. i want to bring in ron peebles. he's a top fundraiser for the obama campaign. don, you're not buying individual homes, but there's definitely stuff going on in the construction sector, in homebuilding, in home buying, as diane said, in refinancing. these low rates as expensive as they've been to keep in place, it seems to be combining with low income prices. >> if you look at the market in miami, for example, which was one of the biggest drops when the housing recession hit the hardest, miami is back. miami is back in a very big way. new york is back in a very big way. washington, d.c. is back. markets like phoenix, they're back as well. nevada, for example, still h
the election's all about the economy and both men were trading jabs today in the battleground state of virginia. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> when i'm president of the united states, that unemployment rate is going to come down not because people are giving up and dropping out of the work force, but because we're creating more jobs. i will create jobs and get america working again. >> let's get right to tonight's big story. with senator john mccain, the arizona senator and former presidential candidate joining me now. welcome to you, senator. >> thank you, piers. >> we are going to come to the debate in a moment. you've been one of the only people who debated both barack obama and mitt romney so you're in a unique place to tell me what you made of the new style romney and indeed, obama. before we get there, though, today's big news on the jobs front. whichever way you spin this from the republican side, this has to be good news not only for the p
's still the economy. campaigning in virginia coal country, mitt romney tried to dig through the latest jobs numbers. to make the case, he has not hit just yet. >> fewer new jobs created this month than last month and the unemployment rate, as you know to this year, has come down very slowly. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> still, one of romney's key metrics on the president's handling of the economy went up in smoke when the nation's unemployment rate dipped below 8%. >> 88% unemployment for over, what 43 months. >> we still have unemployment above 8%. >> he told us to get us back to work and hold unemployment for 8%. >> month after month, after month. >> it's a political bar rising. proposing statement at the first presidential debate. >> we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. if i'm president, i will help create 12 million new jobs in this country with rising incomes. >> reporter: but romney notes the president has fallen short of estimates set by the own economic advis
condition about the economy. >> it comes down to trust. therefore we have to trust him generally. and his position about aboion has flipped all over the place. >> it hasn't. and what he is referring to let me put the allegation to you, the allegation that he was saying before that i want to repeal row versus wade and i want the power to revert to states and now he is saying he has no plans with the power to refer to abortion. >> he is referring to whether or not there were piles of legislation in congress that he is pursuing in his presidency. and he has said it yet today that we will not be funding abortion with tax pay or money. he is a pro life president and people at the point of conception deserve the freedoms as preserved by our constitut n constitution. this is a rabbit trail. you want to talk about trust. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that is trust. if a politician changes his position on issues do you see it as a cynical exercise? >> no. listen, i hear what you are saying. i think it is possible to learn things about legislation and determine things as you go
the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. [ applause ] >> when i'm president of the united states -- [ applause ] >> -- that unemployment rate is going to come down, not because people are giving up and dropping out of the work force, but because we're creating more jobs. i will create more jobs and get america working again. >> let's get right to tonight's big story. we're with john mccain, former presidential candidate, and he joins me now. welcome to you, senator. >> thank you, piers. >> when it comes to the debate, you were one of the only people, actually, who has debated both barack obama and mitt romney, so you are in a unique place to tell me what you made of both of their performance. whatever way you spin this from the republican side, the job front has to be good news not only for the president but also america, but the number has now gone down to 7.8% for the first time since 8% of his presidency. >> i think that's found to be good news, but i also think you have to take it in the context that 7.8% is still u
. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country's come too far to turn back now. >> so it looks like unemployment is getting better, but the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> you hear mitt romney pivoting talking about the real unemployment rate at 11%, so i -- i guess that's his pivot coming off the unemployment rate yesterday. randi, why does all this matter? as you mentioned off the top, the economy by far the number one issue with americans. take a look at this, from our cnn/orc international poll. we did it about a week ago before the first debate but i don't think it will change people's perceptions. by far the economy remains the top issue on the minds of americans. it's been that way since late 2007 when the u.s. economy went into a recession, and how do americans feel about which candida
for the failure, the misery that this economy is right now and lay out a plan going forward. and i think mitt romney is just going to keep doing that. barack obama can spin and his surrogates can say some of the things stephanie was saying and they can run all these ads they're distractions and try to win this race outside of those debates. but these debates are important because you have two people unfiltered going back and forth on their ideas and their records, and so far, governor romney i think has laid out a pretty compelling case and the president's has been pretty weak. >> so far, he's certainly winning the battle of the debates but there are two more to go and a lot to play for. thank you very much. >> good to be with you, piers. >>> coming up, the actress under fire for supporting mitt romney. why she's facing racist attacks. stacy dash talks to me exclusively. here she comes.

views, different views about the economy. i don't know why there are any undecided people left after the debate. >> looking at reaction. >> biden had to buy his boss a week until the next debate, and he did that tonight. he fired up the obama base. gave it some energy. they could have taken away his laughing gas a little earlier, he was charming joe biden tonight. that wasn't his mission. i thought ryan proved himself unexpectedly confidence on foreign policy, reasonable, and not a scary republican that everybody was warned about. and i have to agree with david, a draw tonight, but ryan looked reasonable. onto the next one. >> it was interesting to see vice president biden continue to inject himself, even when ryan was talking. some would say he was annoying. the. >> romney has moved up, not that obama moved down. people thought better of romney and he began to move up. biden put romney on trial. my twitter, e-mail, on fire this is exactly the debate performance that democrats needed. biden showed fire. the one condescending moment when paul ryan look at him and said i know are you u
to jack welch, one of the all time-great c c c c c ceos. he was tweeting about the economy adding 114,000 jobs last month and the jobless rate falling three-tenths of a point to 7.8%. that would be the lowest since president obama took office. here's how president obama reacted to the economic news. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> president obama on the campaign trail today. now here's what mitt romney said. >> the unemployment rate, as you noted this year, has come down very, very slowly, but it's come down nonetheless. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> he went on to say the country can do better, which is about what you would expect him to say, same as you would expect president obama to say what he said. that's the way the two sides do it, year in, year out, campaign after campa
this way. >> paul is a smart guy. he has committed his life to understanding the problems of our economy, presenting a plan for the american people. so i think that paul is going to do -- is going to do a great job. >> vice president biden will do very, very well. he knows what's been going on. he's in touch with with the american public. and i'm just hopeful that mr. ryan will tell the truth. >> it's a one-shot deal. they've got to get it right on this debate. likely what are they focusing on in their rehearsals? >> well, i mean, joe biden told us he's focusing on paul ryan's economic plan as he introduced to the house last or the year before, because they think that is fertile territory to find a lot of ways to try to paint mitt romney and paul ryan as, you know, against the middle class and taxing the middle class. i think joe biden is going to wrap mitt romney and paul ryan as tightly together as possible and just sort of drop the ryan plan on top it to try to implode the pair. they think that is good ground. as far as paul ryan is concerned, i think he is kind a policy wonk. his pro
of the night. number one for joe biden, the economy at just over 6:00. number one for ryan, budget and taxes at almost 7:00. ryan, budget and taxes, number two issue, ryan, the economy. mirror image of biden. vice president spent third most time talking about the problems in the arab world for the congressman from wisconsin. number three, entitlements, such as medicare, social security. that's our team of timers actually scored it. unlike the last debate, what was also striking, how similar two candidates were to the time they devoted to key issues, not because they agreed, instead because for every punch, an equally sharp counterpunch. some examples, each different almost completely. but at times, around 5:00 each were nearly identical. same on foreign policy side on iran, again, disagreement, and again about equal time. 4:30 each. likewise on ending the war in afghanistan. the vice president and congressman ryan spoke for nearly the same length of time about 5:00. however, what they said could not be more different. like night and day. correspondents standing by with each side. stay with u
play it. >> spain spends 42% of their total economy on government. we're now spending 42% of our economy on government. i don't want to go down the path to spain. i want to go down the path of growth that puts americans to work with more money coming in because they're working. >> all right. i don't want -- >> no, no. >> i can imagine it would seem offensive. here is the question had it comes to his words versus the president's words. the president, everyone hangs on every syllable or consonant. mitt romney, does he have more latitude or is he under the same microscope over seize? >> he is not under the same microscope. some of the things he's said in the past before that comment about spain, for instance, about the palestinians and how israelis are somehow implying culturally business minded where as the palestinians are not and some of the things he said regarding russia, for instance, that it is america's number one geopolitical foe, and those have been framed in the foreign press and other countries outside of the united states as gaffes by someone who is not experienced in f

. he was quoted as saying that he thought the economy was performing at near full potential. now, first of all, when we decide that 1.5% growth is near full potential, we are in terrible trouble. and i would say geithner suffers from an amazing lack of ambition for this economy. i actually think that's what's wrong with the entire obama administration, they have a lack of ambition for this country and what it can and should do. but i would also say if he believes that, that tim geithner believes that a public sector job is equivalent to a private sector job. it's not that public sector jobs aren't important. teachers are important, firemen are important, nurses are important. but a public sector job doesn't pay for itself. taxpayers pay for it. a public sector job doesn't create other jobs. a private sector job pays for itself and creates other jobs. i frankly found his statement shocking. both because of its lack of ambition and because of its misunderstanding of what actually drives growth. it's not public sector jobs. >> let me ask you this, under reagan's recovery, were we laying of
on that. so whether it's on the economy, whether it's on leadership, he's now tied with the president. as far as leadership ability is concerned. so i think romney got everything out of that debate and more. >> he certainly did. and if you take a look at -- let me put the numbers back on the screen one more time. earlier this month before the debate, romney was behind the president, the president, 51%, romney, 43%. eight-point difference. now 49% for romney, 45% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minuses of these two candidates. what i really need to see, though, to make any judgment about how this is going to really affect the election or how it has affected voters is i need to look in the battleground states, don't you think? you need to look at the battleground state of ohio. you need to look at wisconsin. you need to look at iowa. you need to look at virgin
, spend. it's good for the economy. if you love it, that's all that matters. thank you for joining. everybody, "ac 360" starts now. >>> good evening, everyone. we begin tonight with breaking news. late polling that reads like a battle damage assessment from last week's presidential debate, both nationally and in one battleground state it shows a big swing toward mitt romney. take a look. late this afternoon, there was this latest national pew research poll. governor romney now holding a four point lead among likely voters surveyed october 4th through the 7th, after the debate. that's a b swing from mid-september when president obama was ahead by eight. that was this afternoon. just a short time ago, a poll running in the detroit free press shows the president's lead shrinking to just three points in michigan. mr. obama had a ten point lead there last month. mitt romney's running mate, paul ryan, is in michigan tonight addressing a rally at oakland university in the town of rochester just outside detroit. the question tonight, if the mood of voters is changing here, could it also be
that the u.s. economy is continuing to heal from the wounds inflicted by the worst downturn since the great depression. jack welch tweeted this, unbelievable jobs numbers, these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so change the numbers. and the partisan pushing continues this morning. >> on friday we learned that the unemployment rate is now at its lowest level since i took office. >> friday's jobs report shows america still desperately needs jobs. yet the president's central and sole proposal would mean fewer jobs. >> republicans in congress need to stop trying to relaxing fight the battles of the past few years and finally start doing something to actually help the middle class get ahead. >> we can't afford four more years like the last fr. prices, 23 million americans struggling for work. >> congress needs to step up and pass my plan to create a veterans job corps to help our returning heroes find work as cops, firefighters and park rangers in communities across the country. a few weeks ago republicans in the senate voted that plan down. ask them why someone who fights for this c
argument, gdp rose by barely a percent during that time. isn't much when the economy was growing at a rate like china's, but the u.s. was at the time. they got a boost, but not much of one. ronald raeg's first big tax cut we went into effect, and the economy did surge. economic growth went from 4.9% to north of 8%. year three, not so impressive. look at quarters, there were some drops. for perspective, today, the top marge call taxate is 30%, not like are you at 70 or 90. can a reduction in rates really spur the romney ryan growth? let's let's bring in guests and find out it's true. doug and mark, great to see both of you. doug, the romney/ryan plan will reduce rates like 20%. let's forget the lool hope for a moment. see the top rate go down from 35% to 28%. that's certainly not a drop, like jfk did or romney did. can 35 to 28 spark real gdp growth? >> i think we're in a very different world and quite frankly a better world. the feature they have in common, often not appreciated, these are permanent tax reforms, and they have much bigger impacts. it makes sense. a tax cut for a day, you wo
interrupting each other. >> for 3409 minutes voters saw two dramatically different visions on the economy. >> the last people who need help are 120,000 families for another, another 500 billion dollar tax cut over the next ten years. >> our entire premise of these tax reform plans is to grow the economy, and create jobs. >> to national security threats like a nuclear iran. >> and if they get nuclear weapons, other people in the neighborhood will pursue their nuclear weapons, as well. >> war should always be the absolute last resort. >> reporter: for the most part it was a substantive debate between two longtime lawmakers who tried to disagree without being too disagreeable. >> when my friend talks about -- >> reporter: biden avoided any trade mark gaffes but did provide a little levity. >> this is a bunch of stuff. look, here's the deal -- >> what does that mean a bunch of stuff? >> well it means it's simply inaccurate. >> it's irish. >> we irish call it malarkey. >> okay. >>> so much to talk about out of this debate. martha raddat zpchlt, i thought she was terrific. >> absolutely. if the
